Awwwww, Sumo is so cute! Betta obsessions are fine, they are easier to take care of than a lot of other animals, and if you need to leave them for an extended period of time, they don't make a mess of the house/apartment.
@c4talus7: You can take fish on planes? I never thought you could do that... Why are you taking your fish on a plane?
@tsoto80: Haha, double standard, I love it! And yes, if guys started calling their pets their girlfriends, it could get creepy. The guy who trained me at work was telling us about his girlfriend, and it turns out she's a puppy. THAT was creepy...
@lilchiwolf: I have never had my own horse(s), but I love them and cannot wait to get one of my own.
